John Hollinger of ESPN uses his player efficiency ratings to lay out who's hot and who's not in the playoffs. In what should be no surprise to anyone who has watched the Nets first two postseason games, Nenad Krstic is among the hot with his averages of 21 points, 8 boards and 57.1%. Jermaine O'Neal, on the other hand, is among the not. Hollinger points out that other than the fourth quarter Sunday, the Indiana big man's playoffs have been "a complete washout". On Thursday, the NBA fined O'Neal $15,000 for his comments about the officiating after Game 2.
